Brazilian Haiku

As I think I said in my last Haiku post, lots of different countries have made their own versions of Haiku poetry.

The Brazilian Haiku is three lines with the regular syllable count of five-seven-five. Braizilian Haiku, however, rhymes. There are three different rhyme schemes that can be used:

aaa

aba

abb

My examples below are in the preceding rhyme schemes.

Created by me with Microsoft Paint

Friends from long ago

You see on the street, and know

If friendship still flows.

~*~

Wishing you were here

Standing by my side again

And I shed a tear.

~*~

Lord, please bring us close

Even over many miles

Cause our hearts to smile.

So pretty! I'd heard of haiku before but never this type. You taught me something new today.
